Stomprud Angus Ranch 2012 Production Sale
Stomprud Angus held their 8th annual production sale Monday, April 23 at Faith Livestock Commission. Stomprud Angus is owned and operated by Larry Stomprud and families. Together they have focused on – and achieved – raising functional animals on hard grass.
These bulls were deep bodied, structurally correct and could definitely cover some ground. Larry and Jay have been selecting sires that excel in carcass and maternal traits. This set of bulls was one of the best groups that Stomprud Angus has raised, which when combined with beautiful sale day weather made for a great sale.
